Click here for the on-demand recording!

An effective program management office (PMO) is critical where multiple, far-reaching projects have major impact on costs, profitability, resources, and customer relationships.  The PMO is the vital tissue that connects project planning teams with project execution teams, creating a company-wide discipline that helps more projects come in on time, on budget and on strategy.  Companies lacking a PMO see delivery times lengthened, budgets exceeded, team morale strained, and negative impacts in the marketplace.

This webinar will cover proven ways to reduce the inherent risks of implementing the PMO.  It will cover the pros and cons of internal and outsource PMO strategies, exploring the best practices leading to a fast, consistent boost in productivity and ROI.  You’ll learn how to:

  • Ensure successful implementation and rollout while reducing complexity and organizational shock
  • Implement a PMO for less – without endangering deliverables or quality
  • Attain measurable ROI from your projects and initiatives
  • Position yourself for success with internal or external audits
  • Offload day-to-day functions such as onboarding and off boarding team members, new projects, creating templates, timesheet/expense processes, milestone and executive reporting
